Preparing for the encore production of John Henry’s “Arguing with God” is Travis Brown, of Washington, D.C., shown here on a hydraulic crane known as a cherry-picker. From this lofty perch at the Stone Hill Amphitheater in Flint Hill, Brown will play Yahweh and argue with Moses and other “Chosen People,” on Sept. 11 at 5 p.m. The open-air theater — hand built by Henry over seven years from a quarry — provides a multi-level stone stage for a truly unique theatrical experience. Adam and Eve, Noah and his wife, Abraham and Sarah, David and Bathsheba, Solomon and his 700 wives all take on new significance through Henry’s modern adaptation of the Old Testament. Tickets are $20 at the door or available at arguingwithgod.eventbrite.com. Parking and children’s attendance are free.
